(TheConservativeNews.org) – Over this past weekend, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) went after Dr. Deborah Birx, a key member of Trump’s coronavirus task force. Pelosi accused the doctor of spreading disinformation and being overly optimistic about COVID-19. And, that didn’t sit well with Birx.
The Speaker started her attack behind closed doors. She reportedly trash-talked Birx in a White House meeting with Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, where the House Speaker called her “the worst” and “horrible.”
Then she doubled down on her assault on ABC’s This Week Sunday morning.
Mainstream media (MSM) joined Pelosi in the criticism of Birx. The New York Times echoed her sentiments, while at the same time praising Dr. Anthony Fauci.
On Sunday morning, Dr. Birx fired back. She appeared on CNN’s State of the Union, where she explained that her decisions are only influenced by the data.
Dr. Birx did an excellent job of defending herself against the attacks from Pelosi and the press. But this whole episode just shows how corrupt and dishonest the MSM really is. When President Trump and Republicans criticized Dr. Fauci, they were attacked mercilessly for it. Yet when Dr. Birx’s credibility came into question by the Democrats, they were praised.
For her part, Birx was a class act. She certainly could’ve gone after the Speaker and the press who backed her up. Instead, Birx just said that she had great respect for her opponents. If only Pelosi could say the same.
